Instructions
  1. Cut out the bottom core of cauliflower. Discard
  2. Slice cauliflower as thin as you can. Mandolin is best, but you can slice with good sharp knife.
  3. Toss with vinaigrette.You will want the vinegar to be pronounced. I found that the cauliflower doesn't hold the vinegar taste.
  4. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  5. Add in chile flakes.
  6. Add golden raisins, chopped scallions, nuts, (reserve some nuts for garnish).
  7. !Vinaigrette Instructions
